May the Fourth

was an exciting day at Strathcona. It was our third annual Star Wars Reads celebration and the library offered numerous fun literacy activities. Above, you can see our bulletin board, that grew over a week, building anticipation. Staff and students came dressed as favourite Star Wars characters. One of my favourites, was the Princess Leia hoodie:


At recess and lunch we had Star Wars books on display and pencil/paper activities. The ultimate activity was the Star Wars Trivia Game Show, set up by tech guru Mme. Annie.

This week we celebrated Star Wars Reads Day!  Students from Mme. Annie’s class wrote short conversations between two Star Wars characters using cut out speech bubbles, plushies, and a colour photocopier.  It was a super fun collaborative activity with one French Immersion class, the Vancouver Public Library, our wonderful Inner City Project Teacher, Margot, and me, the teacher librarian.
